TEST ANIMALS
- Source: Charles River Laboratories, Research Models and Services, Germany GmbH, Sandhofer Weg 7, 97633 Sulzfeld, Germany
- Females nulliparous and non-pregnant: yes
- Age at study initiation: approx. 9 weeks
- Weight at study initiation: 179 - 200 g
- Fasting period before study: feeding was discontinued approx. 16 hours before administration; only tap water was then available ad libitum.
- Housing: groups of 3 animals in MAKROLON cages (type III plus); bedding material: granulated textured wood (Granulat A2, J. Brandenburg, 49424 Goldenstedt, Germany)
- Diet (ad libitum, for exception refer to "fasting period before study" above): commercial diet, ssniff® R/M-H V1534 (ssniff Spezialdiäten GmbH, 59494 Soest, Germany)
- Water (ad libitum): drinking water
- Acclimation period: at least 5 adaptation days

ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS
- Temperature: 22 °C ± 3 °C (maximum range)
- Relative humidity: 55% ± 10% (maximum range)
- Photoperiod (hrs dark / hrs light): 12/12

Administration / exposure

Route of administration:
oral: gavage
Vehicle:
other: 0.8 % aqueous hydroxypropylmethylcellulose
Details on oral exposure:
VEHICLE
- Justification for choice of vehicle: the vehicle was chosen, since it is known not to produce toxic effects.
- Batch no.: 13D 03-N03

MAXIMUM DOSE VOLUME APPLIED: 10 mL/kg bw

DOSAGE PREPARATION:
The test item was dissolved in the vehicle.
Doses:
2000 mg/kg bw
No. of animals per sex per dose:
6 female rats (3 animals/step)
Control animals:
no
Details on study design:
- Duration of observation period following administration: 14 days
- Frequency of observations and weighing: observations were performed before and immediately, 5, 15, 30 and 60 minutes, as well as 3, 6 and 24 hours after administration. During the follow-up period of two weeks, clinical signs were observed at least once a day until all symptoms subsided, thereafter each working day.
Individual body weights were recorded before administration of the test item and thereafter in weekly intervals up to the end of the study. Changes in weight were calculated and recorded.
- Necropsy of survivors performed: yes, at the end of the experiments, all animals were sacrificed, dissected and inspected macroscopically.
Statistics:
No statistical analysis could be performed (the method used is not intended to allow a calculation of a precise LD50 value).

Results and discussion

Preliminary study:
not applicable
Effect levels
Key result
Sex:
female
Dose descriptor:
LD50
Effect level:
> 2 000 mg/kg bw
Based on:
test mat.
Mortality:
No animal died prematurely.
Clinical signs:
The administration of the test item did not reveal any signs of toxicity.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results:
GHS criteria not met
Conclusions:
LD50 (female rats) > 2000 mg/kg bw
According to the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and subsequent adaptations, the substance is not acutely toxic via the oral route.
